|From this viewpoint, we thought he had a fish|
|As he approached, you could see it was a stick|
We settled in waiting for some action. The female was actively tending the young and ripping apart a fish. The chicks then settled down for a nap. We talked and watched a young blue heron flying about hoping for the return of the male.
After a couple of hours, the wind off the lake was about to do us in and hunger was calling. We kept walking a bit aways from the water to a sunny spot and would warm and watch. As it was now getting close to noon, we felt for certain he would be bring lunch at any time.
|He offers up the prize stick|
|The female obviously expecting food looks confused|
|The female dispatches the male with a scolding|
The look on the female's face is priceless. You can almost hear her thinking of what the heck am I suppose to do with this? Both chicks were up and moving now anticipating food. Poor little eaglets! The female quickly dispatched the male from the nest. I hope the chicks make it. For her to be such a good eagle mom, dad needs to start bringing home the bacon or fish in this case.
